STAYIN' YOUNG (IS SURE GETTINí OLD)       BY JOHN FLYNN

IF YOU DRINK SODA POP
YOU'LL GET A MUFFIN TOP
GO BUY SOME SKINNY PANTS
TAKE ANTIOXIDANTS
GREEN TEA TURNS BACK THE CLOCKS
TASTES LIKE IT'S BREWED FROM SOCKS
YOU GOT TO MANAGE STRESS
AND PRACTICE MINDFULNESS
DRINK RED WINE IF YOU WISH
EAT LOTS OF OILY FISH
INSTEAD OF COW OR HOG
PRACTICE YOUR DOWNWARD DOG
TAKE METAMUCIL TOO
YOUR SLUICE WILL SAY THANK YOU
AND WHEN YOU CUT THE LAWN
LATHER THAT SUNSCREEN ON
CHORUS:
WELL I WOULD AND I COULD
AND I SHOULD BUT I PROBABLY WONíT
SOMETHING INSIDE ME SAYS DO
EVERY TIME THEY SAY DONíT
IíM WEARY OF THEORIES
AND DREARY ADVICE THEY EXTOL
DELAYING DECAYING
THIS STAYIN' YOUNGíS SURE GETTINí OLD
BACK OFF THE CHIPS AND FRIES
FORSAKE THOSE OLí MOON PIES
AND EVERYDAY SWALLOW
EIGHT MUGS OF H2O
DONíT SMOKE NO CIGARETTES
AND IN CASE YOU FORGETS
WEAR SOMETHING ON YOUR WRIST
TO COUNT THE STEPS YOU MISSED (CHORUS)
WEĎLL LIVE SO MUCH LONGER BABE
AT LEAST THATíS WHAT THEY SAY
OR MAYBE IT WILL ONLY SEEM THAT WAY
IíLL TAKE SOME DIMPLED THIGHS
AND WRINKLES ĎROUND MY EYES
AT LEAST BEFORE I CROAK
IíLL LEARN TO TAKE A JOKE
ITíS US OLD CODGERS WHOíVE
GOT NOTHING LEFT TO PROVE
LETíS HAVE A GRAND OLD TIME
BEFORE THAT LAST BELL CHIMES (CHORUS)
